    @Sicilian Papa “I glad it makes you nuts.”

    Hey SP, you don’t have to worry about me. I’m actually having a blast right now. Knowing the America elected Obama not once but TWICE makes me feel really good about America and our Future. It lets me know that the far right loons like Rush, Sean, Coulter, Malkin, Ingraham, etc, failed miserably in changing the minds of America.

    I’m really enjoying the fact that wingnuts like you and your buddies are still scrambling and trying to figure out why you guys lost AGAIN!!! I’m enjoying seeing you loons run around like chickens with their heads cut off. I’m enjoying seeing all these rich Republicans crying about having to pay more taxes. But most of all, I’m enjoying seeing Republicans come to the realization that America’s demographics have changed forever and there’s nothing they can do about it besides becoming more Liberal.

    Needless to say, I’m really enjoying life right now.

    Can’t we all just get along?

    Hello everyone. Please be advised that President Obama is president of all the people. We should be committed to helping POTUS to get this country moving in the right direction. Republicans; tell the Tea Party that it is over.

    No he isn’t….Obama hates the rich, conservatives, republicans, small business owners, anyone who owns an oil, coal, or natural gas company, Christians, the military…white people…the list is endless…

    MSNBC, still on FIRE!!!

    -Rachel beats Hannity again in the key Demo.

    -Lawrence beats Greta again in the key Demo.

    How is MSNBC on fire? Even Rachel is down 17% from last week…it’ll continue…there just isn’t that many people in America who want to listen to 24/7 lies and hate speech…

  • Ratboy

    Maybe someone should tell tingles that there is no more need for the race baiting! What an IDIOT!

    Now Chris Matthews Thinks The Word ‘Urban’ Is Racist

    The list of words MSNBC’s Chris Matthews believes are racist if uttered by a conservative got longer on Wednesday.

    You can now add “urban” which offended Matthews when Congressman Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) said it during an interview Monday, but didn’t bother the Hardball host in the slightest when Salon’s Joan Walsh said it on his own program two days later

    “There’s more of this dog whistle crap going on,” said Matthews before he introduced guests Walsh and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Cynthia Tucker. “Here’s Paul Ryan expressing his surprise at the pro-Obama turnout in an interview Monday.”

    In the video clip, Ryan said, “I think the surprise was some of the turnout, some of the turnout in urban areas which definitely gave President Obama the big margin to win this race.”

    Pretty innocuous, wouldn’t you say?

    Not for Matthews who thinks everything uttered by a Republican is racist.

    “This guy Paul Ryan, who I still don’t think is right for primetime yet by any means, talking about the urban vote,” fumed Matthews. “No, they won the other side because they got the most, because they won fair and square which is the first thing Ryan said.”

    “Why did he have to go step on his own headline ‘They won fair and square’ by saying, ‘Oh it was the black vote?'” Matthews preposterously asked. “Basically, that’s what he was saying.”

    Really? So if a conservative talks about urban, suburban, and ex-urban voters just like anyone else might, he or she is being racist?

    Do only blacks live in cities in America? There are no whites in Manhattan, Boston, or Philadelphia?

    Apparently not.

    But the really delicious part came a few moments later when Walsh referred to urban and suburban voting areas without a squawk from Matthews.

    “Paul Ryan lost his home district, lost his city, his hometown, let’s just say that, which is not a particularly urban place,” Walsh said without any pushback from Matthews.

    She added, “And I cast my first vote for Jimmy Carter in suburban Milwaukee.”

    So you see, it’s fine for a liberal – even a white liberal – to say urban. Not the slightest bit racist.

    But when a Republican does it? Dog whistle!
